I was down filming and taking photos at the beach with the Sony a6000. There were numerous rainbows out. I saw the Victory Casino Cruise heading out for their nightly voyage going right under a rainbow. Can't get any better than that. Cha-Ching!

We're getting closer to Fall and the sun is changing, hitting the glass on my front door. I looked down to see all these curvy lines of light and snapped a pic of what looks to me like the Virgin Mary. Interesting photos in the most unlikely places.
I can't think of anything better than enjoying the outdoors, drinking a nice cup of joe and watching the super moon rise above the horizon. When I saw my friend drinking his coffee an idea came about. The motion of tilting back to drink his coffee kind of reminded me of a wolf leaning back howling at the moon. I wanted the moon to be the centerpiece, because, well, it's the super moon. I brought my Nikon flash with me so I slapped the orange filter on it and tilted facing towards the sky. I was trying to create a fire effect. I positioned my subject by "the fire" tilting back to drink his coffee essentially howling at the moon.

Have you ever wanted to photograph something in public and there are just too many people around your subject? This happens to me all the time. I see something I would love to photograph but I don't want all the people in my photo. One of the ways you can change this is by changing your perspective. Finding something within your subject, change your angle, or just get a piece of the subject to make an interesting photo. Or, you can try to wait a very long time for people to leave.
There was something kind of interesting to me about these pirate ship masts.
Unleash your creativity! Shooting a portrait is one thing, but being able to mix that portrait with the superpower of photoshop can create stunning results. Shooting a green screen backdrop can be difficult giving nasty green spill. If you do it properly and with a little color correcting and masking you can remove a background pretty quick and easy. Then, all that is left to do is fill in your background with a fancy design and some neato text.

There is just something about taking photos that I'm addicted to. I don't know if most people will get it, but I just feel good when I'm out creating.
I'm a huge fan of both the movies and television, so it was a real treat when I recently got to set foot on and photograph a real life movie studio ranch up in the Santa Clarita mountains for aranchodeluxe.com.
I really love photographing old dilapidated houses. I love the rotting wood and the old boards that are peeling off the frame - it's so dramatic. I like to think about the history of it. What type of people lived there? What events, good or bad, happened there? Why did they move out? Where did they go? Is it haunted? In the case of this old church, I know it was just a set at one time. For what film? I will never know.
New Retro NIKON DF Camera, hmmmm.
I sit here thinking, this is quite interesting. Just 2 months ago I pulled out my old Nikon FE2 camera body and was holding it in my hands. I was reminded just how simple photography use to be. You load a roll of film, set your ISO, set it to Manual, select shutter and aperture and you are all set to start making photos. The older cameras were light weight and simple. I really miss that.
Today's cameras are overly complicated, bulky and well, can you say dust spots? You can do a lot more with today's cameras, but I guess that is why they are overly complicated. I guess it's about having your cake and eating it too.
These cameras may remind us of times that have passed, but I bet these new "retro" cameras are bloated with software with endless menu options. I will look but won't touch. If you are a brave one, you can pre order yourself some old school camera here http://goo.gl/519JlB
